Back to school is just around the corner but that doesn’t mean the culinary adventures have to stop. From Good Cheer Trail fun and eating local with farmers’ market spoils, to feasting on food truck fare at a vineyard, here’s what’s cooking in Nova Scotia this week:

August 26 – 27
Treat the kids, and yourself, to one last overnight stay this summer. Pictou Lodge Beach Resort is celebrating the end of the season with their Back to School Bash. It’s fun for the whole family with bouncy castles, a reptile zoo and a yummy nightly barbecue.

Start the weekend early with a “Kitchen Party” style acoustic jam session at the Trellis Café, and while you’re there try their famous Fish Cakes – it doesn’t get any more Nova Scotian than this.
